Fe Fi Faux

Fe Fi Faux
Truth be told, this staircase is pretty striking even in its mid-construction, shambles-a-plenty phase. 
 You might think that the raw wood banister was going to be stained, but you’d be wrong! Lori wanted it to match the rest of the iron staircase, but didn’t really want to pay for it. And I don’t mean she wanted to steal one, I mean she instead gave it a metallic paint treatment with a little texture thrown in to mimic the look of real iron. 
 No further details as she does not have a blog that I’m aware of, but I for one would love to know more! Fill us in, Lori! 

UPDATE!! Well, what do you know? Lori decided to start her own blog, and this staircase is her very first post! Head on over there and give a new blogger some encouragement! Plus, lots more pics of the stairs! Click here: Projects Plenty

    Gorgeous!! But she must not have kids by the look of those tile stairs. Stitches were the first thing that flashed into my head. 😉

    Hi, Lindsey. You have inspired me to create a blog and my first post is on my handrail project. I am not sure how to reference my blog so I am hoping it pops up automatically when I publish this comment. If not, I’ll do some research. I am SERIOUSLY new to blogland… so embarassing. Anyway, thanks for publishing my submission. Your blog is fantastic.
